Book Your Beach Hut Now!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Oct 28, 2023
Wow! What an incredible stay at Aitutaki Village! Upon arrival, we were greeted at the airport with eis (such a nice touch!) and shuttled straight to the hotel. We were greeted by Robin who was so sweet, kind and helpful, assisting us multiple times throughout our stay with questions and requests (thank you, Robin!). The cute little beach huts were so well appointed, incredibly clean and were situated across a small road on the BEST BEACH in Aitutaki! I’m talking calm lagoon waters where you can walk hundreds of feet away from shore and still be waist deep, where when the tide is low you’ll have your own sand bars! Also, unlike our accommodations in Rarotonga, the bath amenities were also wonderful.

We joined the island nights cultural show and that also included much better food and entertainment than our resort in Rarotonga. The Blue Lagoon restaurant in general has superb food, cocktails and drinks. Not to mention is a stones throw away from the amazing lagoon! Ally was our awesome bartender and server who (like every other staff member we encountered) was sooooo helpful and service oriented. Breakfast consisted of toast, cereal, fruits - but they recommended Koru Cafe (AMAZING) if you wanted something more substantial.

We had a private boat charter to visit the other islands and although the weather was not in our favor, it was still an incredible experience. Seka and Jeitin (sorry for any misspelling) were our guides for the day and for 3/4 beaches, we were the only boat there. Private beaches galore!!! BBQ lunch at One Foot Island concluded the day before we headed back to Aitutaki Village. Don’t forget your passports for One Foot Island to get your stamp in your passport. We forgot ours but the Bishops Cruise tour guide was happy to meet me after the cruise to stamp ours!

The boat tour and AV are owned by one family - the Bishops - and man do they do a great job! Thank you especially to Maria who helped me book this incredibly stay and for helping with my trillion questions and bookings to truly make this a seamless stay! And also a big mahalo to Andrea who assisted leading up to our stay with the last minute details and questions.

If you’re reading through these reviews wondering if you should book, don’t even give it a second thought! You seriously will not regret it! We’re already trying to figure out how and when we can return! ;)

Placed as close as you can get to the best beach on the main island Ootu beach and it’s shades of blue are breathtaking! The team at Aitutaki village made us feel like family, their beautiful villas are very well equipped, the beds we’re comfortable, the outdoor shower and deck was the best to look out at beautiful Ootu beach, the staff went over and above, they are very attentive and polite, the village has a restaurant in front “Blue Lagoon” it never disappoints, it’s the only place I will stay and eat, I will be back again. Thanks to the Bishop family who have the hearts of angels, your hospitality and kindness made our Cook Islands trip very special 😇
Aitutaki Village & Cruises are 10/10 and rated A++
PS: Book the Bishops island cruise and road tour around the island too! You don’t want to miss out on all the history and beautiful One Foot Island!!

I had an amazing experience with the Bishop's at their beautiful hotel. The accommodation is outstanding, the location is heaven and the people are amazing. The meals and cocktails in the Blue Lagoon are sensational, yes there is a happy hour! and watch out for Lemon the cat, he doesn't mind a smooch. I will definitely be coming back. I have already recommended to my family and friends

Room tip: Book a table at the restaurant to avoid missing out! Enjoy yourself!

Right on the lagoon, lovely rooms/huts, unfortunately the restaurant was only available for breakfast as they weren’t fully up and running due to travel only just opening up but there was a restaurant walking distance so it wasn’t really a problem, the staff were lovely, swimming was great

The resort is small and very clean. The rooms are right by the lagoon which is stunning snd the staff were all so welcoming and helpful. They helped us book dinner in a nearby restaurant and organised a driver to take us to the airport . We will be back one day, soon hopefully

I would say at the outset my review is honest and only at this grade as the island and indeed the resort need more tourists so they can operate normally and open up.
We luckily only stayed overnight and the price at $340 was pretty high for what you get in return.
We were the only visitors this night and so restaurant was closed, but luckily the gem at the Boatshed was open for food..the cabin we stayed in was spacious and very clean and tidy with a deck.
Don’t expect a lie in tho as roosters are first awake.
Breakfast was pretty feeble with fruit and warm yogurt and some not so fresh sliced white bread. The staff member was happy to play on her phone whilst we helped ourselves and unfortunately for the owners staff didnt appear to want to work too hard.
The owners daughter Maria was lovely and took our issues on board.
Hopefully, this was just a one off as it could be a great place with more guests and staff willing to work for guests more.
The location is pretty good on the side of the lagoon and just a few minutes from the airport.
Its an expensive island in general and that could be why many stick to Rara.
With other countries opening up reviews will be important for choices after being stagnant for so long
